A family of artists...

Grandma Peggy is an artist, so she set the boys up with several projects. She is an amazing artist with the gourd, using them as a canvas creating a huge variety of art on the gourd. Ruben and Spencer painted their birdhouse gourds. It took several days of painting to come to completion. The boys taught Grandma how to "bust a cap" which was flattening bottle caps with a hammer, then nailing a hole in them to thread into a necklace. All of us adults got a kick out of "busting a cap" with Grandma. The boys left Grandma and Grandpas house with a collection of arrowheads, beads, painted gouds, and great memories.
